Anyone who has ever played EvE Online knows the mantra "trust nobody".  Scamming with the ingame currency is not only allowed, but almost encouraged.  There have been "player operated" banks in EvE that have gained trust over years and then with no warning walked away with TONS of ingame money because they can.

I see people making the same mistakes with their BTC that they could have learned to avoid by just spending a few months play EvE.  I really would recommend it.

I did the trial for EvE, and really liked it, but can't justify spending a monthly fee to play a video game.

I didn't know about their in-game money system, though. That's interesting. They should use bitcoin!

Yes, common sense is what is needed. But I'm saying that EvE can help people who have never had experience with virtual commodities and haven't developed that "common sense" can use EvE as a chance to get scammed but without the huge consequences.

Sometimes you need practice to develop a true understanding of how things work as not everyone is magically gifted with the same "common sense" abilities.

Well, EvE does have someways where you can use the ingame currency to buy game time and, thus, play for free.

The thing about EvE, or any popular MMO for that matter, using BTC as the in-game currency are multiple. First, they'd be dealing with a real currency and be subjected to all kinds of new regulations and infrastructure to deal with it.  Second, it would defeat the purpose of my post which is that people can get scammed for "practice" without losing big Smiley

I think there's a lot of overlap between the anarcho-capitalist EVE online and the Bitcoin currency. Certainly, anyone with experience in EVE understands that they are first and foremost responsible for their own success and protection.

When Bitcoin wallets are as secure as EVE wallets, that's when we'll really see wide adoption.

Thanks for not making any sense.

If the "eve douchery" was so successful in teaching everyone not to trust, then how can it still be happening?

Thanks for not taking more than half a second to think about it.  We can all wait for you to mentally catch-up with the rest of the class.

The nice part about EVE is that the main method for sending money around is a "Donate" button.  That might be a nice feature in the bitcoin client.

Eve and bitcoin resonate with certain types of folks.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.
